Delta 2 launch file photo (Boeing) The launch of a new polar-orbiting weather satellite has been postponed because of high winds early Wednesday. The Delta 2 was scheduled to lift off in the early morning hours of Wednesday to place the NOAA-N satellite into polar orbit. However, officials scrubbed the launch Tuesday night because high winds prevented the rollback of the service tower at the launch pad, halting launch preparations. The launch has been rescheduled for Thursday at 6:22 am EDT (1022 GMT), at which time winds are forecast to subside. NOAA-N is the latest in a series of Polar Operational Environmental Satellites that complement other weather satellites in geosynchronous orbit, providing atmospheric sounding and other data.
